I'm trying to get Wireshark to work in non-root mode in Squeeze. There
is a sort of how-to at /usr/share/doc/wireshark-common/README.Debian,

Mmm... did you configure it as "I.a" or "I.b"? Do you have a customized/
vanilla kernel or Debian's stock one?
Configure what, how? I can find no configuration files.
Using Debian's stock amd64 kernel.
I have no wireshark group, and apart from in that document I can find
nothing about dumpcap.
Can anybody give me some hints, please?
Readme file says that you have to manually add the users to wireshark
group. And I bet that running the app as root will also work.
Well, as I said, there is no wireshark group. Perhaps that is the problem.
Running as root does indeed work, but pops up a dire warning that it's
dangerous to do so. I don't particularly want to run as root.
